Coding Potpourri: MySQL

  1. 1. Coding Potpourri: MySQL Nicole C. Engard Director of Open Source Education, ByWater Solutions Author of Practical Open Source Software for LibrariesMonday, July 25, 2011
  2. 2. My What? • MySQL: My Structured Query Language • Relational Database Management System • Licensed with the GNU GPL • That means it’s Open Source • Used to organize data in a structured wayMonday, July 25, 2011
  3. 3. Who’s Using It? • MySQL is the database behind many popular web based applications • Wordpress • YouTube • Drupal • Flickr • Wikipedia • Ebay • Facebook • Google (not searches)Monday, July 25, 2011
  4. 4. Reading Table Structure CREATE TABLE `branches` ( `branchcode` varchar(10) NOT NULL default , `branchname` mediumtext NOT NULL, `branchaddress1` mediumtext, `branchaddress2` mediumtext, `branchaddress3` mediumtext, `branchphone` mediumtext, `branchfax` mediumtext, `branchemail` mediumtext, UNIQUE KEY `branchcode` (`branchcode`) )Monday, July 25, 2011
  5. 5. Reading Table Structure • This table’s name is ‘branches’ and it stores the information about libraries or branches in Koha. • Each field is easy to identify because of its name (ex. branchname is the library name). • A field with a number in parens after it is a field that is limited in size. • For example varchar(10) means the field can have no more than 10 characters in it • Lastly, we see that ‘branchcode’ is the unique key or unique identifier in the table.Monday, July 25, 2011
  6. 6. Inserting Data • Using the branches table enter a branch’s info INSERT INTO branches (branchcode, branchname, branchaddress1, branchaddress2, branchphone, branchemail) VALUES (‘LIB’, ‘My Library’, ‘123 Library Road’, ‘Philadelphia, PA’, ‘215.555.1234’, ‘info@library.com’);Monday, July 25, 2011
  7. 7. Querying MySQL • To query a single table you will structure your query like this: • SELECT column_names FROM table_name [WHERE ...conditions] [ORDER BY ...conditions]; • Statements in brackets are optional • You can also select everything in a table by using an * in place of column_namesMonday, July 25, 2011
  8. 8. Querying MySQL • Using the branches table let’s query the data • This query will pull out only the Branch Names and Emails and put them in ascending order by name SELECT branchname, branchemail FROM branches ORDER BY branchname ASC;Monday, July 25, 2011
  9. 9. Querying MySQL • Using branches let’s get the address info from one specific branch SELECT branchname, branchaddress1, branchaddress2, branchaddress3, branchemail FROM branches WHERE branchcode=‘LIB’;Monday, July 25, 2011
  10. 10. Querying MySQL • Using branches let’s pull out the branch’s phone and fax in one column SELECT CONCAT(‘ph. ’, branchphone, ‘ fax ’, branchfax) as ‘contact info’ FROM branches WHERE branchcode= ‘LIB’;Monday, July 25, 2011
  11. 11. Another Table CREATE TABLE `issues` ( `borrowernumber` int(11) default NULL, `itemnumber` int(11) default NULL, `date_due` date default NULL, `branchcode` varchar(10) default NULL, `returndate` date default NULL, `return` varchar(4) default NULL, `renewals` tinyint(4) default NULL, `issuedate` date default NULL, KEY `issuesborridx` (`borrowernumber`), KEY `issuesitemidx` (`itemnumber`), )Monday, July 25, 2011
  12. 12. Joining Tables • Using branches and issues let’s find out how many items circulated at each branch in a specific time period SELECT b.branchname, count(i.branchcode) as count FROM issues i LEFT JOIN branches b ON (i.branchcode=b.branchcode) WHERE i.issuedate BETWEEN ‘2011-06-01’ AND ‘2011-07-01’ GROUP BY b.branchcode ORDER BY count DESC;Monday, July 25, 2011
  13. 13. Date & Time Functions • The most common use for reports is for end of the month or end of the year statistics • The MySQL manual on Date & Time functions is essential for these queries • http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/ date-and-time-functions.htmlMonday, July 25, 2011
  14. 14. String Functions • Often you want to join two or more strings together, find a part of a string or even change a part of a string • String functions are defined in the MySQL manual • http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/ string-functions.htmlMonday, July 25, 2011
  15. 15. Math Functions • Using MySQL you can get fancy with statistics by using the number related functions • The Numeric Functions section of the manual can help you here • http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/ numeric-functions.htmlMonday, July 25, 2011
  16. 16. Common Functions • COUNT(FIELD) or SUM(FIELD) •Counts the number of or adds up the total value of results in a column • CURDATE() •Is the current date (not time, just date) • MONTH(FIELD) and YEAR(FIELD) •Return the month and year from a field • DATE_SUB(DATE, INTERVAL) •Subtract a period of time from a dateMonday, July 25, 2011
